Boot+Kitty=Poetry in motion
She'd learned through his discipline,
That her hopes lay on the ground.
And so she lived her live with him,
Always looking down.
She'd learned through his vitriol,
That she'd never be good enough.
And so she quelled her aching soul,
And looked down instead of up.
She'd learned through his angry shouts,
That her opinion was always wrong.
And so she succumbed to her selfdoubts,
And muted her spirit's song.
She learned through her life with him,
That she had had enough.
And so she decided, "Never again"
And started looking up.
She learned the Past only saw her back,
As it pushed her on through life.
And though its memories were filled with black,
They were the source of her guiding light.
She learned the Future lay up ahead,
Pulling her through the miles.
And though the Past saw only her back,
Only the Future could see her smiles.
She'd learned that always looking down,
Kept the future from her sight.
So now that Lady is looking up,
And she's going to be all right.
